Inside the glittering Annabel’s For The Amazon annual charity gala
The capital’s brightest young things descended on Berkeley Square for an exclusive soirée dedicated to raising essential funds for a profoundly meaningful cause.
Last night, an eclectic and chic crowd commandeered Annabel’s to fête the annual fundraising gala, ‘Annabel’s For The Amazon,’ led by Richard and Patricia Caring. A commemoration of a month-long series of events and initiatives aimed at generating crucial funds for The Caring Family Foundation (TCFF), this lively soirée witnessed the presence of key environmentalists, international guests of note, and glamorous luminaries including the likes of Wallis Day and James Corden, adorned in their most exquisite attire. Uniting to shine a light on the magnificence and destruction of the Amazon rainforest, Andrew Garfield and Toheeb Jimoh (of Ted Lasso fame) chatted away while indulging in the effervescent delights of The Lost Explorer Mezcal.
As the night unfolded, The Nightclub became the heart of the Club’s celebrations, with a curated line-up of the summer’s most sought-after and trendsetting DJs: Who Made Who and Bedouin. Both took to the decks, with members and guests dancing until the early hours—if Douglas Booth and Sophie Simnett spilling out at one in the morning is anything to go by, it’s safe to say it was a roaring success.
“When we think about the deforestation in the Amazon, we usually think about the trees, but I have seen firsthand that there is so much more at stake for the life within,” said Patricia Caring—Cofounder of The Caring Family Foundation and Co-chairwoman at Annabel’s. “The indigenous communities who inhabit the rainforest face daily challenges due to the destruction of the land they call home. TCCF work hand in hand with traditional and indigenous communities to build sustainable futures so that they can continue to protect the Amazon for us all. It is my hope that this message spreads as far and wide as possible and inspires people to take action with us today.”
At the heart of TCFF is its vision of a world where women and children can thrive. This year’s campaign will allow TCFF to invest even further in social projects within the state of Acre, empowering women and generating income for local and indigenous communities. With a steadfast commitment to creating positive change and by listening to the leaders of local and indigenous people, TCFF will expand its efforts to two more indigenous communities and traditional families including 193 remarkable women, (34 single mothers), alongside their partners in Brazil, SOS Amazônia.
